I can't speak to your specific case, but many Chinese women do not produce enough milk because they are not eating enough additional kilo joules to produce milk. Also, many Chinese women are actually malnourished in the sense that they do not get enough of certain vitamins like iron from their dietary habits. The final reason is that some women do not develop an adequate supply during the first weeks of the baby's life because they are not attempting to nurse frequently enough. For the first month, an infant should be offered the breast every 2-3 hours around the clock (even at night.) Many women are not given that information while they are still in the hospital. In my area, the hospitals are terrible about giving new mothers adequate instruction on the care of their newborns.

Because most of chinese women don't produce enough milk!!!!They have no choice.
It is not exactly thrue. No eveidence in the medical records if there is that "natural difference".
What was before artifical "formulas"? Women also had not enough milk?
Then how happend that childs survived?
When the woman feeds the baby only once or twice a day using natural milk - not enough milk is produced to feed the baby all day. And the feeding ability may be "switched off" completelly. This is because the self-regulation of human body.
There is a solution - to suck the milk into smal containers (even at work it is possible - just a few minutes) and then feed it to the baby. It can be even frozen. This way iis very popular in many places in the world when the mother have to spend all day away from child - for example working.
